In Week 15, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was caught spiking his Microsoft Surface tablet on the sidelines. A little over a week later, he provided an update on that incident.

During the latest episode of the "Let's Go!" podcast with Jim Gray on SiriusXM, Brady revealed that he received a warning from the NFL. If he spikes another Microsoft Surface tablet, he'll get fined.

"I did get a warning from the NFL," Brady said, via ESPN. "I can't throw another Surface or else I get fined. Imagine that! Imagine that."

Brady added that he won't throw another tablet this season. However, he believes his sideline antics were good marketing for Microsoft.

"I won't throw another Surface. Although I think it was pretty good marketing for the Surface at the end of the day. I think it worked out pretty well for them."

Microsoft trolled Brady last week about this incident. The company responded to the following tweet from Saints defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson: "Hey @Microsoft@surface , can y’all send me a new Surface Tablet? I need to give it to a friend who broke his. Thank you and Merry Christmas." 

Brady didn't have a meltdown on the sidelines this past Sunday, as he led the Buccaneers to a convincing 32-6 win. He'll need to keep his composure throughout the rest of the regular season and playoffs in order to avoid a fine.
